Garage Sale Trail

They say one man’s trash is another’s treasure, so what better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than hunting for second hand treasures at the city’s biggest garage sale?

Garage Sale Trail, a national event taking place this Saturday 5 May, is a community based, nation wide event with an emphasis on sustainability, creativity and micro-enterprise.

Hosier Lane will play host to the main sale event and ambassadors including radio presenter Kate Langbroek, musician Angus Stone and designer Marnie Skillings will be showing their support by hosting stalls of their own.

“I found an old Super 8 camera with some rolls of film. I bought it for twenty bucks,” says Angus Stone of his favorite garage sale purchase.

Proceeds of the event will go to Youth Projects, a charity supporting homeless youth in Melbourne, but the event’s creators point out that the event is not just about raising money.

Open to businesses, households, cultural institutions, charities and community groups alike, the intention is to create awareness for local resources and ultimately connect local communities.

“What I love about my neighborhood is we all know each other and that creates a nice sense of community,” says pro surfer, environmental activist and event ambassador Dave Rastovich.
